As most of you know, I startedOo! That’s A Bit Racey! for a number of reasons; to share my personal journey towards antiracism, to document the many things I’m learning, to help distill my thoughts and, most importantly to encourage people to talk about race, ethnicity and equality.
For a blog that’s supposed to be about conversation, I’ve realised I’ve been doing an awful lot of talking.
So I’m feeling inspired, and very excited to give you all a rest from my voice, and to give us all the chance to listen to others.
Hi friends! Thanks for joining me for today’s blog post. It’s been an interesting couple of weeks with some fabulously bright highlights.
The journey towards anti-racism can be challenging, especially when you’re trying to take others with you, but the tequila shots that blast me with energy are the people I meet along the way. It’s made me re-think about that dreaded activity, networking….
I’ve “networked” a fair amount during my career. I’ve never minded it. Stick me in a bar with a glass of wine and a canape and I’m pretty happy. I can chat to anyone and have a perfectly pleasant time.
But that’s not what networking is really about is it? It’s not about swapping business cards, promoting your business and nodding politely.
